3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle with a best by date of July, 2014.
Aroma has a light grainy and bread character with some light citrus and tropical fruit notes. Hints of pine resin and grassy hop notes.
Pours a slightly cloudy, golden orange with a pale copper character and a moderately sized, fluffy white head with nice retention. Moderately high lacing with faint legs.
Flavor is light and crisp with a light grain and bread character. Medium light bitterness with medium light hop character. Hop character is fairly fruity and citrus forward with some stone fruit character. Light pine resin notes.
Mouthfeel is medium light to light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a nice IPL but it could be a bit lighter and crisper with a more hop forward and brighter presence. Otherwise, nicely balanced and easy drinking.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a light amber with a pillow head decent retention and light carbonation. Aromas of fruity/floral hops(grapefruit, pine) and caramel. Flavors of light pine, spruce, light floral, and just a light caramel backbone. Leaves a slight corn/grain aftertaste. Lightly sweet. Mostly comes through like an ipa slightly above the average especially in the nose. Pleasantly surprised with this one!

Sam Koch is a kook. Like his beers or not his passion and spirit make for some fun (and good) beers.
This ipa, pardon me, ipL is good. Pours a nice golden color with amber hues and a big thick fluffy just off-white foamy head. The aroma and flavor are a little grassier than your average ipa or apa. Flavor is of a grassy, flat ipa, but not in a bad way (just dont know how to describe it with more positive words).

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a darker gold with a two inch white, pillowy head that lasts. Taste is of citrus, pine, malt, grapefruit, hops. Nice aroma that is similar. Has a nice body that finishes dry and bitter. Easy to drink like a lager, but packs an IPA punch. Refreshing and quite enjoyable. A nice beer that I wouldn’t mind enjoying on a summer camping trip.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fruity aroma, hop, grass, caramel and malt. White lacing galore. Clear yellow-gold color. Thin body and fairly dry. Actually, it is quite dry. Not boozy at all. Strong lager? W

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Honey gold color. Floral aroma. Flavor has floral and grapefruit notes. Definitely lacks the depth of an ale but pleasant flavor and highly drinkable. I like it.

Unjustly rated as served straight from the bottle from Landmark Americana just off Rowan University Campus. Not a bad beer but limited in a few categories. Worthy of a second try.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours deep golden with long lasting, foamy, white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of orange, citrusy hops and bready malt. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Citrusy hops, bready and caramel malt some cotton candy fill the moth. Finish is long IPA like. There is some mismatch of flavors but, on the whole, it is good brew.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured a clear amber with little to none off white head that went away very quickly. Aroma of grain and some hops and a bit of malts. Flavor is mostly bitter hops (but not overwhelming), citrus and grassy flavors balanced with a bit of sweetness from malts. Drinkable.
